There are many interesting things about Brescia-Juventus, but one is the first day of the 2004-05 season. The first is Fabio Capello's debut in the league, having come to the helm of Juventus after a series of important and often winning experiences with Milan, Real Madrid and Roma. His Juve, in fact, had already passed an important test, overcoming the Champions League preliminaries against the Swedish side Djurgarden. A double confrontation from which a first indication emerged: the defence creaks and it explains the purchase of Fabio Cannavaro who would give compactness, experience and athletic explosiveness to the department. The attack, on the other hand, is a mix of security and possibilities. They are represented by the Del Piero-Trezeguet couple, a long-standing union, a guarantee of goals and mutual understanding. The latter focuses mainly on the figure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. At 22 years old, he has put in talented performances already shown in Ajax.
The last victory in Brescia
Brescia-Juventus is one of the most convincing debuts in the league in the history of the Old Lady. A test of strength that highlights all the characteristics of the 4-4-2 forged by the new coach: solidity, attention, lucidity in seizing the moment in which to hit and finish the opponent, as evidenced by the one-two launched at the end the first half, which effectively closes the game. Pavel Nedved and David Trezeguet were the goalscorers: the Czech strikes a corner kick; the French finishes off a splendid action, with a final assist by Jonathan Zebina.
Ibrahimovic took just 24 minutes from his entrance onto the field to enter into the list of foreigners able to score on his first appearance in the Italian league. Just as what happened to one of his great compatriots in 1956, the Swedish Kurt Hamrin, in a trip to Rome against Lazio, which Juventus won 3-0.
